Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat egg lightly and gradually add sugar. Beat with mixer until light and foamy, about 20 minutes. Add almonds and flour; mix well. Roll dough into finger-thick ropes on a very light floured surface. Flatten slightly with fingertips and cut into 3 inch lengths and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in oven until light brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets and cool completely before storing in airtight containers. Store 1-2 months.

Yield: 2 dozen cookies
